Steve Austin Has An Interesting Take On Brock Lesnar Vs. Goldberg



Twelve years ago, Stone Cold Steve Austin officiated the WrestleMania XX match between Goldberg and Brock Lesnar. With the two set to take on each other later this month, it has given him a prime opportunity to give his take on the bout. In a recent interview with PWTorch Livecast “Interview Thursday,” Austin gave his preview of the mega match.

“You know, when you go in there and you work a match with Brock Lesnar and you were and still are Bill Goldberg, there’s got to be some drastic physicality to this. This is not going to be Brock taking powders out of the ring because he’s worried about Bill Goldberg. This is going to be two big bulls in there fighting. We’ll just see how they lay it out. I’m not nervous, I’m hopeful that they just kick ass and blow the roof off the place. That remains to be seen… It can be a brutal, brief ten minute classic. I don’t care how long it is, as long as it’s good and suits both guy’s character and it’s good for both guys. You can look there and say, ‘Okay, what’s the finish going to be?’ Let’s just forget about the finish. We’ll see what happens when the finish goes down.’ Both guys need to go out there and be who and what they are.”

 Austin’s point of view pretty much sums up what many are hoping comes about from the match. It pits two physically imposing wrestlers against each other in what could a brutal match. The only question mark here is whether Goldberg can handle that physicality given that he’s been away from more than a decade.
There will be some ring rust, but that can be overcome by relying on his physical strength to get him through it. The match is still a couple of weeks away giving Goldberg some more time to prepare for what should be a streneous fight. More importantly, there is a chance that this could become an instant classic that may lead to another
